True Colours


A flash of dizzying brilliance –

and rainbows arc and dance,

Science defying gravity.

Remove the Light,

and the mystery implodes;

a vortex of chaotic, gaping grief-space



falls by warped way-side.

But once rainbows are born,

first-born suns illuminate

the pain-place,

and Wounded walk,

painted in surreal stripes,


True Colours…

      Thanks! I am getting almost desperate for some new shots, and it has been dangerously cold for a few days – school buses not running, things getting cancelled. Here’s hoping for a bit of a warmer trend!
